To also show how right the US is, is the fact that "liberals" are supposedly the left wing. In other parts of the world liberal usually means centrist.

But its something that happens in Canada as well. The boundaries are slowly pushed farther and farther right.

Jade is correct - our "liberals" are the conservatives in most of Europe.

Nor do I understand why America is so conservative compared to the rest of the democratic societies. Sometimes, I feel we are in a Dark Age, while the rest of the free world is experiencing the Enlightenment.
